Clean comfortable rooms with ample bedding. Always a great place to stay. The staff remember me every time. Mud hut is close to the Main Street of Coober Pedy and offers great service in terms of information and suggestions for what to do around town. Recommended!

The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was decent. The shower wasn't the most awesome ever, but it is the middle of the desert I suppose. The rooms are well appointed, and the beds were comfortable

I stayed here on my way north, I have stopped overnight here several times before, all staff were polite, attentive & helpful, also they helped me to find a safe place to leave my fully loaded trailer to collect on my way south several weeks later.

After a long day on the road, hard to think of a better place. very clean, quiet, well appointed and everything works properly. Very friendly staff, with flexible arrangement for those wanting to get away early. If their restaurant is not open, there a good options within walking distance.

Very friendly staff, spotless and comfortable room, walls looks impressive, concrete walls, some parts smooth and other parts rough. Close walking distance to Chinese restaurant and just wandering around the town. Would recommend it to all.

Remarkably comfortable outback motel. Spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and excellent free WiFi. The interior walls are formed of concrete panels, some rough cast, with the characteristic red soils providing a fascinating decor (and superb soundproofing) Staff were extremely helpful. The motel is near the town centre, but far enough away to be safe and quiet.

(My own pillow stayed in my car overnight which does not happen that often.). I hope to be able to stay here on my return trip. Side story: a stone... More
